Lion In The Mane
"Over Our Feet"
Pop


Just another one of several critically acclaimed records that made Brooklyn's indie rock band, Lion In The Mane one of the top new emerging bands on the East Coast and in fact one of the most celebrated US indie rock bands at the time of their debut back in 2011 when they released the album, "The Way We Are Wired". It's passionate, exciting and fiery, with lyrics about love, youthful exhuberance and overindulgence, and that very distinctive teen pop feel that made the band as big as it became before they disbanded in 2017. As the band prepares for their 2019 reunion concert in September, this is certainly one of the records that will be getting a lot of radio play and love from DJs.

Lion In The Mane
"That Sort Of Thing"
Pop


Smells sounds like teen love

This month, New York's indie music scene was rocked with exciting news that the sensational independent Brooklyn rock band, Lion In The Mane, who split up back in 2017 after just over 5 years of being one of the East Coast's favorite indie acts is getting back together for a reunion. It's unsure whether the band is reforming for good but they'll be playing a gig at one of their old stomping grounds on the 6th of September. See details and tickets on the Skunk Radio Live Events page.

Amongst many records that defined their signature sound, "That Sort Of Thing" was one of the tracks that put their name on the map as a force to reckon with and still remains a fan favorite today. It's a lively, energetic, youthful record that'll have you throwing your hair around wildly - one of those infectious pop rock records that will ensure your air guitar gets its shine one more time for at least 3 minutes.

"Golden Age Thinking"
Folk


You are not ready for this

"Golden Age Thinking" is the brand new album by critically acclaimed rapidly emerging Washington, DC band, Wylder. It was released on the 12th of July and is being hailed as one of the most exciting folk albums this decade, taking into account both indie and mainstream releases. First announced only a few months back when it was still in production, the album quickly became one of the most highly anticipated independent releases this year and has not only lived up to the expectations of fans and even the most discerning music critics, but has grossly surpassed them as well. The band's new single, "The Lake" which was released on the 21st of June, shortly after they returned from their summer tour gave fans a taste of what was coming, but it's now safe to say nothing could have prepared anyone in the world for this album. It's one of those albums that makes you take a deep breath, sit up straight and go "hmmm", with one eye slightly squinted like a puzzled professor who just discovered something that was there all along. It offers a sound so familiar and so good it'll make you wonder how it's possible you've never heard anything like it. If you like sweet melodies and bright, colorful, summery sounds consider this your birthday pinyata. It's so exciting and uplifting it will make you want to grab a little kid by the shoulders and just shake them for being so damn cute. With 11 tracks, all carefully crafted and performed to the highest standards and apparently only one goal - to make you feel amazing, this album will do things to you that will have you tingling all over. Also features the 2019 singles "Ready To Break" and "Ghosts".

"Vinci Code"
Hip Hop


Solid!

It was the first single released before Mississippi rapper, Drevo Coolidge officially dropped his latest mixtape, "Drevvy Xxperiment" on the 1st of July. It set the tone for what is now being described as yet another monumental moment in Mississippi underground hip hop as the independent Jackson star continues on his quest for world domination.

Masterful production, hypnotic beat with a mildly melancolic backdrop that creates an air of mystery. Great structure, a very consistent theme all the way through, steady groove and a solid feel overall - this will really blow your socks off. Features Mississippi rapper, Mafiello.

A sad song that will make you so happy

Another track from Love X Stereo's award-winning "37B" album that really hit home with fans. It's a deeply moving track about heartbreak with a very futuristic retro beat that will lift you off the ground, carry you away on a dark cloud to a special place where you can bury your sorrows and then bring you back feeling more refreshed than a Microsoft browser.

Get the handcuffs

The latest single by Michigan underground rapper, Wiz Kid The Weirdo has proven to be one for the books. It was released on the 11th of May, and has received and continues to receive high praises locally and nationally as it spreads like wild fire, leaving nothing but pandemonium and sex maniacs everywhere it plays. It's loud and noisy with a very busy sound that's exciting, macho and raunchy. An intense record that commands full attention from start to finish.

I can't believe it's not music

5 tracks that will change the way you hear everything

The only way you could possibly ever be prepared for this utterly exciting and rewarding creative expedition that could change the way you hear music and the sounds in the world around you as a whole forever is to get a litre of Jack Daniels No. 7 whiskey, some really good weed, a gynaecologist, a cape, a grossly overweight hooker and some really good running shoes and make your way down to the nearest athletics track making sure you've completely run out of booze and rolling paper by the time you get there. Now, with the gynaecologist and the hooker at one end of a 100 meter straight and stirrups in position, put your cape on and charge from the other end like a mad goat with a grudge. You'll need to try a few times to get it right.

It would make absolutely no sense at all if you were even the slightest bit prepared for this album, that's all that means - don't get any ideas. This album, like every previous release by the masterful Belgian experimental music producer, sound designer and sound engineer, Seiswork is all about exploring the depths and discovering the limits of sound as well as studio equipment. Prepare to have your mind boggled.
